Video of the Week: Oxford Lightweights, Creating a Culture of Confidence

Rising Tide at OULRC | BUCS Regatta with Cameron Buchan | Washington Wins Windermere over German Crews

This week’s video comes to us from Oxfordshire, and offers an inside look at the process of building a cohesive team culture on the lightweight side of Dark Blue. Head coach Samuel Wells describes the challenge:

“It’s easy to follow in the wake of someone else, who has achieved something before. But to step out of that—to be the person at the front, leading everyone—is a lot more daunting, but it’s also a lot more liberating. You’re not defined by whom you follow—you can set your own path.”
